Whale Bauble Diorama

Download Activity Guide

This cute little guy will look great hanging as an ornament in your room! Get creative with the contents in his belly. Look to our designs for inspiration or come up with your own!

Search terms: moby dick, surfer, surfing, under the sea, big fish.

  • Step 1Begin by giving your diorama and wooden person a coat of white paint. Allow to dry. This is not essential but provides a good base for painting.
  • Step 2Paint the outside of your diorama dark blue and the inside light blue. Allow to dry.
  • Step 3To create a surfer to put inside your whale’s belly, paint a wooden person and a small piece of cardboard (or even a recycled bottle cap!) as a surfboard in bright colours. Allow to dry and add detail with a marker. Use hot glue to attach your surfer to his surfboard.
  • Adult supervision is required when using a hot glue gun.
  • Step 5Cut small strips of tissue paper and glue inside your diorama. This is the water inside your whale’s mouth. Place your surfer on top and attach with glue.
  • Step 6Cut two fins, a tail and water spout from foam sheets. Attach to your whale’s body with hot glue.
  • Step 7Attach two large wiggle eyes either side of your whale’s mouth and your whale is complete!
